Sat Jul 28, 2018

This Cannes Film Festival award winning film, “The Golden Dream” (2013), directed by Diego Quemada-Diez, follows three young men as they make the journey from Mexico to California.

Samuel, Sara and Juan, three teenagers from Guatemala, decide to leave poverty by going to the United States. After crossing the Mexican border by boat, they find another immigrant, a Tzotzil native called Chauk who does not know Spanish but is able to befriend Sara. When they arrive in the town of Chiapas, they busk for money to eat and drink but are later caught by Mexican Immigration Police agents, who steal Juan’s boots and threaten Chauk with a gun, before deporting all of them back to Guatemala.
